The green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England, is home to the cider apple orchards which surround the gardens of Pear Tree Cottage. They enjoy a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury and Abberley clock tower. The Teme Valley lies just over the hill and, not far away, is the Herefordshire border. Although our climate is temperate, our seasons are often uncertain and always a challenge to a gardener! This began in 2010 & follows the weekly ups and downs of garden work chronicling both successes and failures but, above all, demonstrates the fun enjoyed by three people who regularly garden in all weathers

Every Gardener Needs a Potting Shed!

Builder & Labourer at work!
Potting bench & temporary window
Who's a lucky girl? Chris and I have nearly finished a potting shed.  It's part conversion and part new build. A sort of hybrid as we've enclosed an area behind the tool shed and cut a hatchway into the back of  tool shed where the potting bench is now sited. It's an amazing transformation - not only because of the extra facility but now a dark tool shed is flooded with light. There's still a few things to complete such as shelving and an oriel window. It's the nearest you could get to a drive-thro potting bench!!
